Economy

Building a healthy economy and job market for all Coloradans is one of my top priorities in the legislature.  Unfortunately, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our state and national economy, and we must focus on solutions that accelerate our economic recovery.  I am confident that we will meet this unprecedented challenge and come back even stronger.

Coloradans are struggling to find jobs to support their families.  I want to make sure that every hard-working Coloradan has the opportunity to succeed.  We must support our local businesses not only through legislation, but also by “shopping locally” – and keep Fort Collins a leader in supporting innovative entrepreneurs.  Small businesses and their employees must be protected as they strongly impact the economic health of our community.

I will also advocate for workforce development programs designed to prepare Coloradans for the jobs of the future.  Jobs that provide a living wage and support individuals and families throughout our State.  I know we will persevere and rebuild our economy to one of the strongest in our nation.
